Book early, travel together

School group travel is particularly popular on our services, especially in the summer, and each year hundreds of schools choose to use us for school trips. We encourage you to book your trip with us as early as possible so we can help you get the train you want. The latest that school group bookings can be taken and confirmed is seven working days before you wish to travel, and the whole group must travel together for the entire journey. For very large groups (of 100 or more) we ask that travel is booked at least two weeks in advance – this gives us time to make arrangements to accommodate your group smoothly.

Terms and conditions

  • Minimum of 10 persons per group.
  • All persons in the party must travel together at all times.
  • Bookings must be made and paid for at least 7 days prior to travel.
  • All payments must be made a minimum of five working days ahead of your journey
  • Amendments to bookings will incur an administration fee.

To book your group onto one of our services, please complete our form below and we’ll be in touch with you very shortly. Please note it may take up to 28 days prior to the date of travel for Charter train times to be confirmed.

We look forward to welcoming you onboard soon.
